Strength in vulnerability

I don't have a lot of extra time in my life, as it goes. Two kids under 5, running a business, house renos, caregiving for a parent. But this is worth every minute I invest in it! I often put it on when I'm doing dishes at night after a long day, and I find comfort in feeling witness to an intimate, strong, adult, female friendship that I don't really have time for myself. I genuinely feel it's helping me learn to be a more kind, better adjusted human being. It gives me a second lens on aspects of our culture that I otherwise blindly consume (like, hashtags, or lingerie, or the idea of working moms, etc etc). And it inspires me. Katel and Sara are insanely relatable, humble, open and so respectful of their guests. Thank for being so vulnerable about your own journeys and, as other reviewers have noted, providing much needed voices in this genre.
